Roman Dusk (Saint-Germain #19) Pure (Covenant #2)

When the door shut firmly behind Hasan, Nicholas pulled away, crossing over to the bed in several rapid, stiff strides. Rather than sit down on it, he pulled the top blanket off, and without sparing even a glance at her, moved to the opposite end of the room to spread it out over a few floor cushions he gathered on the way.

Sophia said nothing, only stood and wrung out the ends of her oversize coat, as if preparing to go. You’re right. It was…it was very stupid to come. I think—well, I thought—that is, we should talk about what will happen in Japan. I’ll stay as close to the Ironwood bidding party as possible. If you spot someone about my size, do whatever you can to draw them toward the back of the group. I’ll try to pull him or her away from the others and take the robes that the Belladonna supposedly makes everyone wear to make the bidding anonymous.That sounds simple enough, he said slowly, waiting for her to continue.

The Struggle (Titan #3)

She looked down at the back of her hands, her bottom lip caught between her teeth. Stepping to the right, as if to begin her usual listless pacing, she was startled back into place by the loud squeak of the floorboard.Sophia, he began quietly. Li Min is not out gathering supplies, is she?The girl swallowed. After a moment, she shook her head. His breath stilled in his chest. Is she alive?

Meet Me at the Cupcake Café (At the Cupcake Café #1)

The devastation on her face pierced even the numbest parts of him. She had gone a sickly shade of pale, one he associated with someone about to cast up their accounts or swoon. Nicholas took a stiff step forward as she swayed on her feet, and urged her to sit down in the chair again. Though it made his body speak in ten languages of agony, he knelt down in front of her, joints popping with the effort. Black spots swam in front of his vision at the movement, forcing him to shut his eyes tightly until they cleared.When he opened them, a single tear had escaped down her cheek, dripping off her chin like rainwater.

What’s happened? he asked, gutted. Sophia, please; tell me what’s happened.

She’s alive, Sophia managed to squeeze out. But I wish—I wish I had killed her myself. She’s been lying to us the whole bloody time. She was working for the Thorns.‘Now, go on. Go home. I’ll see you here tomorrow, with your head screwed on properly. You’ll be given a formal warning. Luckily, it’s your first.’

Peterson stood, picked up his jacket and left without saying any more. Erika watched the door after he’d left, concerned. She spent another hour at the police station, sorting things out as Gary Wilmslow was formally cautioned for abusive and racist language towards a police officer.Erika was having a cigarette out on the front steps when Gary emerged with his solicitor, an expensive-looking man in a grey pinstripe suit. Gary hung back at the top of the stairs. When his solicitor was out of earshot, he said, ‘Thanks for getting me off. Talking of getting off, what are you up to? You look fucking tasty.’

The Darkest Minds (The Darkest Minds #1)

Erika turned and looked up at where he was leering down the front of her dress. She climbed the steps and came level with him.‘Attempted rape is as far as you’ll get with me, as I’m sure is the case for you with most women,’ she said, leaning down towards his face.

The solicitor was halfway across the car park before he realised Gary was missing. He turned back, saying, ‘Mr Wilmslow.’‘Bitch,’ muttered Gary.

‘Takes one to know one,’ said Erika, holding his gaze. He turned and went off down the steps to join his brief.Marsh’s car pulled up beside the steps and he got out. He didn’t look happy.

‘We need to talk. My office. Now!’ He stormed past her up the steps.Erika watched as Gary and his solicitor pulled out of the car park in a black BMW. She had a horrible feeling she’d released something dangerous back into the wild.
